There is still a good deal of speculation about which Thomas Marshall is cited in the records but Russ Williams has sumised that Thomas Marshall "the carpenter" is not the son of the Captain John Marshall who came from Ireland. I agree that he would not be a carpenter as stated in his will if he had such an illustrious ancestor. In most cases in this era this kind of relative would have made him a land owner and a "gentleman". The records are very scarce and cannot prove conclusively any connection to other Marshalls. [Williams p. 347]
It does appear that Thomas Marshall could have been born in the colonies due to parish baptismal records of the right region and time. The notations in the Northhampton County Order Book for 1661-1662, pps. 389-392, birth notations: "A true account of such persons as have bin borne, Baptized, Married and buried in Hungers Parish from ye 25th of March 1661to ye 25th of March Anno 1662."
